The USB 3.0 protocol officially launched at the Consumer Electronics Show last year. But this year has seen the introduction of dozens of new USB 3.0 devices and the introduction of USB 3.0 devices into homes and corporate applications everywhere.
3.0 SuperSpeed represents a significant step up from the 60MB/s transfer rate of USB 2.0. The new protocol offers speeds of 5.0 Gbits/s or 625 MB/s. For the first time, USB transfer rates may actually exceed the read/write speeds of conventional hard disk drives. When you're using solid state drive storage, however, you'll appreciate the blazing fast speed of USB 3.0.
USB 3.0 has proven useful in homes and businesses for:
- faster back-ups to external hard drives (now there's really no reason not to back up your data!)
- transferring graphics, including movies and photos, from flash memory cards onto your computer
- transferring movies from Mac devices like iPods, iPhones, iPads onto your Mac or PC
